Approach to Staffing Resources
SDA recognizes that our clients often have gaps in knowledge. Sometimes, they also experience periodic variances in bandwidth with their internal resources. SDA’s teams of experts can scale based on client needs and provide resources for projects, support and on-going services work. When a request for a resource or a team of resources is made, we evaluate the current bandwidth of our resources and the timelines of all projects we currently have underway. Our Consulting Staffing Manager (CSM) will first leverage our internal team to identify the appropriate resource for the effort.
In the event we are unable to identify the appropriate resource from our internal team, our staffing team will reach out to our “preferred” contractor list and our internal contractor database of over 6,000 consultants.
SDA takes very seriously the relationships we maintain with premier resources form preferred partners or independent contractors. We place high value on having prior experience with third-party consultants with whom we engage. We limit the use of consultants with whom we do not have prior experience or who do not come to SDA from a professional reference. In the event that we do engage with unfamiliar consultants, we will perform rigorous technical screenings before hiring them.
Approach to Consultant Performance Issues and Resolution
SDA works very closely with our clients to monitor the performance of our consultants, to ensure that quality work is performed and to make sure client expectations are met. We believe proactive communication is the best way to make sure consultants meet the expectation of our clients. We proactively seek performance feedback by doing the following:
- Reviewing consultants and providing weekly status reports.
- Proactively soliciting feedback from client project managers where possible.
